Your death need not be the end.
For those who awake in the River flowing by the hamlet of Rivers Run, a second chance at life is theirs to take. As they leave behind everything they have ever known and are immersed in a portmanteau of cultures and eras, they must survive the strange, the foreign and the unknown.
Rivers Run is a mature post-by-post role-playing game set in an original, low-fantasy world accessible only by death in the real world. Open to new characters, or as a home for those without games, Rivers Run is focused on character development and creating a fun community for all.

The year is 2019. War has erupted between the western rebel states and the United States federal government. Fighting in Denver has made life for all dogs - strays and pets alike - almost impossible. In order to survive, many have fled along the highways until they have found themselves here, in Breckenridge. This isolated mountain town seems to be the best place to wait out the fighting, even though military transports and human scavengers regularly pass through. It is in this desperate refuge where dogs must learn to survive war, or lose their lives in the fighting.
Essence of Horhsal is a self-hosted (using the IPS software) and original roleplay without wordcount in a world called Horhsal. Most things in it are custom made, including the races, continents, countries, and a lot of other things.
There are some high-tech technologies such as devices similar to PCs, laptops, mobile phones, and television but the people of this world do not use electricity to power them and do not have all of the technologies that we have, like airplanes, space travel, cars (but they have other vehicles), and anything electronic (with the exception of similar devices that run on Essence Energy). There are also a lot of "old" things like armor, fortresses, various melee weapons, old-fashioned firearms, absolute monarchies, a lot of jobs that still handcraft things, and also a few highly traditional countries that do not use high-tech devices.
You could imagine Horhsal to be similar to later Final Fantasy games which mix up new and old while still being its own unique world.
